There's a distinctive force behind Running Still's music that's undeniable. The Brooklyn based rock quartet plays with a passion that draws their listeners in and leaves them wanting more. Their dynamic live shows prove this is a band with staying power, and people are starting to take notice.

Biography

With their debut album, "Losing My Reality", RUNNING STILL are poised to show everyone their vision of what's possible for rock in the 21st century.

They've drawn comparisons to artists like Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Kings of Leon and legends such as Radiohead, U2 and Pink Floyd. Robert Wyatt, who worked with the latter extensively in the 1960's and 70's, appears on the band's upcoming UK single, "Come Away," which will be released by Atlantic Records. Wyatt himself said of RUNNING STILL, "This is so good, you don't even know how good this is, you might not know for a couple of decades..." High praise indeed.

RUNNING STILL is now focusing on winning their audience the real way: face-to-face and show-to-show, ­producing a core following of devoted fans. They have performed in clubs and Colleges (RPI, Southern Vermont College, The College of New Jersey, NYU) all over the Northeast. As bassist Ben Zwerin declares, "We want to be able to do what we love for a long time and to reach as many people as possible. We're devoted to the idea that you can change the world through something that although seeming small, is totally impactful. What we're about and what our music is about is creating something that inspires people to think and dream." With boldness of intention and an audacious new album, RUNNING STILL is set to fulfill their mission to inspire the myriad of emotions that make people feel truly alive: love, hope and passion.

Lyrics

My House

Written By: Asi Meskin and JK


Looking all around
Everyone is coming down
And I don’t hear a thing
Everything seems out of synch
And who do I believe
When it’s so easy to deceive
So I’m just tuning out
‘Til I get it straightened out

Damn those cynicals
Selling all their miracles
There is no black or white
You just have to feel it’s right
And all those animals
Acting like some cannibals
There is no truth or false
You just have to walk the course

And I see us alone
You are riding in the backseat of my car
Running away from this world of sacrifice
We are running away
We are riding away
In my car
In my house
In my dreams
You’re the only thing I see
In my house

Look at everyone
Waiting for another run
There is no wrong or right
You just have to choose your fight
And who do you believe
Who do you believe

And I see us alone
You are riding in the backseat of my car
Running away from this world of sacrifice
We are running away
We are riding away
In my car

In my house
In my dreams
You’re the only thing I see
In my house
In my dreams
You’re the only thing I see
In my house
In my house
In my house

And I see us alone
You are riding in the backseat of my car
Running away from this world of sacrifice
We are running away
We are riding away
We are running away
We are riding away
In my car
In my house
